of back and forth contentious debate, congress passed the fisa amendments act, the bill that we are considering on this floor today. we're considering a reauthorization. this law gave the government new surveillance authorities, but it also included a sunset provision to ensure that congress examines where the law is working and the way it was intended. now, the debate we're having right now on this floor is that reexamination. i will just note that i think it's unfortunate that we're doing this at the last second. we have known that this intelligence law is going to expire for years. it was laid out for a multiyear span. and certainly, it is irresponsible for this chamber to be debating this bill under a falsely created pressure that it needs to be done without any amendments in order to match the bill from the house. that is a way of expressing debate on critical issues here in america. if you care about the fourth amendment, if you care about privacy, you should be arguing that we should either create a very short-term extension or -- to have this debate fully or that we should h

expiration of the farm bill. congress passed a farm bill back in 2007 and it contains as all previous farm bills had subsidies and price supports for dairy products and what happens is the federal government guarantees dairy farmers certain levels of prices for their products. and the government buys up milk, cheese, all sorts of dairy products to make sure that that price level is maintained. now, what is going to happen is the farm bill is supposed to expire at the end of this year or just along with everything else. and there had once been hopes it would be included in some sort of grand bargain with the house and senate. the senate was working on one bill and the house on another type of bill and they never agreed so that is out of the picture. the problem here is the existing farm bill has a clause if it is not renewed if there s no new farm bill passed, then prices will revert to the subsidy structure that existed in 1949. it was double the amount of sub is sidisubsidies that exist toe price levels. that could mean that a gallon of milk which today $3.60 or $3.65 which is the nationa
